portable dust collection system for the TAS
« on: August 17, 2021, 06:35:38 am »
Hello all;
I'm looking for recommendations for a portable dust collection system for the TAS.  I need it small enough and hopefully quiet enough to go into storefronts like quilting stores, tailors, some barbershops, ... you probably get the picture.  I'm wanting to set up as a portable knife and scissors sharpening service in central Kentucky.  Any suggestions will be very helpful!  Thanks,

I've got my TAS in a Tanos (Festool) M237 systainer. Am considering using a Festool CT SYS dust extractor, which can be fastened eithe above or below it...

Thanks, CB,
of course! Now that you mentioned it, ...  :D I should have guessed, but that one really left me puzzled.
